Rustic Meatballs

July 24, 2017


I am trying to rely more on what is available here in the garden, preserved in the pantry and freezer and items from food swaps this Winter.


When I opened the fridge there was 1/4kg beef mince, a carrot, some huge green onions (Spring onions) and bits of other veggies; so I decided to roast all the veg except 1/2 the carrot. This I grated and added to the mince along with the spring onions, garlic and fresh herbs.


The result....flavorsome meatballs with lots of chunky veggies. Here's the recipe:


1/4kg beef mince (chicken would work well, too)
1 x grated carrot
1 x large spring onion thinly sliced
Minced garlic x 2 cloves
handful minced fresh herbs (or dried)
Salt & pepper to taste
Olive oil for the pan

Mix ingredients in a bowl, then make patties of whatever size you like. Heat olive oil in a fry pan. Cook meatballs through. Serve with roasted veggies.


Makes 6 meatballs.


These keep well, so if you have more mince make a bigger batch and use cooked meatballs in lunches, served over a seasonal salad.


Enjoy - N x
